This interview is part of our BMJ interview series, where we talk to the people who are changing medicine. The series thus far has been a bit male dominated - reflecting the leadership in medicine at the moment, if not the actual workforce. One woman who's planning to change that is Roopa Dhatt, executive director of Woman in Global Health - a new grassroots organistion which is making waves with its demand for equality of representation for woman in global health decision making.

In this interview, we talk to Dr Dhatt about the genesis of Woman in Global Health, and how they've managed to cement real commitment from the WHO. We also discuss how her experience of being Indian and American has shaped her understanding of equality in medicine, and how the covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the way in which women are discounted.
